Episodes

Notes

Sentai 30th Anniversary
This Super Sentai series celebrated the franchise's 30th Anniversary in 2006.
  • This is the first Sentai series to have both a 9-piece fusion in Super DaiBouken and a 10-piece fusion in Ultimate DaiBouken.
  • Satoru's actor, Mitsuomi Takahashi, made an appearance on the 20th Sasuke Tournament. but sadly was eliminated in the first round.
  • Eiji's father, Kando, was played by Hiroshi Watari, better known for being a seasoned veteran of the Metal Hero series, having played the main hero in two of them (Uchuu Keiji SharivanIcon-crosswiki and Jikuu Senshi SpielbanIcon-crosswiki) and BoomerangIcon-crosswiki, a supporting character in Kyojuu Tokusou JuspionIcon-crosswiki.
  • Each of the Boukengers are based on some their Super Sentai predecessors:
  • Boukenger gets its name from the word "bouken", meaning "adventure". Thus "Boukenger" refers to someone who goes on an adventure, which the team does in order to collect Precious.
    • This is confirmed by the later use of "bouken" in the Gokaiger opening, referencing their theme of adventuring to find the greatest treasure in the universe.
  • Due to this being an anniversary series, all the villains and monster designs were based (sometimes very loosely) on mecha from past Sentai.
